Chicken salad sandwiches recalled

(AP) - A South Carolina company is recalling about 2,800 of its chicken salad sandwiches because of concerns about possible listeria contamination.

The sandwiches, from the Grand Strand Sandwich Co. of Longs, S.C., were distributed in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. They carried the following labels: Grand Strand Sandwich, Lunch Box Sandwiches and Country Harvest Sandwiches, and came in 4.5 ounce and 5 ounce packaging.

According to the company, the sandwiches may contain eggs that were part of a previous recall from Michael Foods in Minnesota. The company that made the chicken salad for Grand Strand bought some of the hard cooked eggs from Michael Foods and isn't sure whether they were used in the Grand Strand Sandwiches.

"Just to be safe," Grand Strand said it was recalling some of its sandwiches.

The company says it is likely that some of the sandwiches may have already been consumed. There are no reports of illnesses in connection with the sandwiches.

Consumers can call Grand Strand Sandwich at 800-758-0476 with questions.
